RJ Hampton, he had 2 slams like this in the last game, only 20 this year.

To be fair, the Hornets were without Hayward, Oubre, and Rozier. Plus Bridges hurt his knee, Washington dislocated his finger, and Ball only played 11 minutes.

Embarrassing regardless but I think any team missing their 6 best players will probably have a poor showing.

Meh - Warriors were missing their 3 best players + Wiseman last night and still dumped on the Lakers Game 1 lineup.

Having an 18 point quarter as your best quarter is nearly impossible even for a G league team (playing against a slightly above middling Mavs team that played 16 players). It's preseason and a non-issue, but hilarious none the less. I can't remember an NBA team ever actually getting >doubled up.

darius bazely has looked great in the first half. he’s a guy whose upside i definitely buy, strong stretch 4 who can score in a multitude of ways. still only 21!

Whiteside looking like he is figuring out our system a bit better. Like him in that 14 minute a game role.

If Giannis can hit that three regularly (and that stroke looks better than it EVER has) Milwaukee is repeating.

I think the coaches may have conspired. We played all G League players the last 5 minutes in Boston to lose a 10 point lead with 5 minutes left. Today Boston played all G League players down the stretch.

Bogdanovic beating up Allen on every play is so cathartic

Sixers played without 6 of their highest minutes guys on Monday against the Nets - who played with KD and Harden. Embiid only played 8 minutes in the game.

He's had a few nice defensive plays, including contests out on the floor.

Bucks are good. Teams need to scheme for Giannis and Khris. Make the other guys beat you.

Today I discovered a new team to watch this season. OKC looks really fun! They're doing very well against Jokic.

I'm several minutes behind, but Middleton is a silly good isolation scorer
